    Acronyms?

    Can we get a stickey thread going that lists some of the acronyms that are used here? I saw a referral over at WB for someone interested in getting into tree hanging and the referrer warned them about our acronyms. Might be helpful.

    Here's a direct link. There are probably more that need to be added to that list. Submit them in this thread, and I'll see that the list is updated in a few days.

    It's also linked in my sig.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I don't usually have a problem with gear acronyms, but I'm often at a loss when it comes to some normal conversation acronyms. Of course I can't think of them now, but things like.
    IMHO - In my humble opinion.
    and something like YMMV ...or something.
    There's less context to pull from with things like that. But it's probably just general knowledge that I missed somewhere along the way.

    Right, I think context usually covers it in an online discussion, and helps you figure it out if an acronym is suddenly thrown into the discussion. As it usually is, IMHO!

    So, that's 3 possible options for one simple acronym...with the difference to be specified by the context.
